ATL vs MIN Dream11: The WNBA is in its initial stages but we have seen incredible battles so far. However, for some teams, the season’s start has been rather tumultuous and they are yet to find their feet. Meanwhile, there are squads that have figured it out already and have shown that they are much improved. One of these teams is Atlanta Dream that will take on the Indiana Fever.

The Atlanta Dream has won six of their ten games, and their production has been so far much better than last season. In the last game, they lost to the Sky 65:73 despite a strong 19 points performance by Cheyenne Parker. On the other hand, Indiana Fever has lost nine of their twelve games, losing the last game 74:87 despite Kelsey Mitchell scoring 17 points. Can the Fever improve their record?

Venue: The Gateway Center

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Dream has dominated Fever this season

Dream and Fever have met in two games so far, with Fever losing two games so far. The Fever lost the first game 79:85 whereas the second game was won by Atlanta Dream 101:79, it means that the team has been beaten comprehensively so far. The Dream saw Rhyne Howard click for big nights in both games and the Fever’s offense was completely exposed in those two matches.

The Dream play at the third-fastest pace(80.1) but their offense is in 11th place points per game-wise. It means that they are rushing their shots and slowing it a bit may help the cause more. In another fascinating case, the Fever plays at the second-fastest pace (80.9) but it is the defensive end that has been a major concern as the team allows the most points(89.2), compare that the Dream that allows the second-least points(73.2). It means that in the battle of two young teams, Fever has been lagging behind so far.

Rhyne Howard(ATL)
Points: 05
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 00
Blocks: 01
Guard Rhyne made just two of her 12 shots in the last game but she has been an incredible scorer and defender for most parts. I believe she will bounce back here and be in 15-21 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks/steals range.

NaLyssa Smith(MIN)
Points: 04
Rebounds: 06

Cheyenne Parker(ATL)
Points: 19

  • Emily Engstler(MIN) had 2 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block in the last game. Emily only made one of her 8 shots but she was much better in the starting role, can she get that role again? I believe she will be in 4-9 points, 6-9 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-27
  • Queen Egbo(MIN) had 10 points, 6 rebounds, 3 blocks, 1 steal in the last game. Egbo has an incredible power in her lower body which enables her to be an effective inside player. I expect a 8-12 points, 5-7 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range.
